Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have had my bearings and hubs in the front of my avalanche replaced four times in the last six months. The last three have all been within two weeks of each other. Grisimer keeps telling us it is probably a bad batch of hubs and bearings they are going through. Not likely! It has started the noise again and will need replaced again and it has again only been two weeks. They said they don't see anything else wrong..... what is it???? Any suggestions out there??

SOURCE: Cutlass Supreme new front wheel bearing repeatedly goes out

You may have pulled the inner tri-pod joint out of the cv shaft and that will make noise. Is the bearing really bad? Does it turn freely?

SOURCE: How can you tell if the front hub assembley needs

There is a wheel bearing inside the hub as well. They will sell those bearings I've bought them before. Chances are you need to talk to a better parts guy. You can tell if it's a wheel bearing by taking the vehicle up to a speed where the noise is clearly audible. Then swerve the vehicle back and forth in your lane. If the sound changes or goes away when you swerve, it's a wheel bearing. Obviously we're not trying to crash the vehicle here, so don't get over aggressive with the swerving.

SOURCE: I replaced hub on front axel but the noise is

It sounds like it is a front end suspension problem. The following should be checked: upper and lower ball joints, the sway bars links, and even the shocks. Replace what is problematic, and your front-end noise should disappear, if it is a front suspension problem. Hopefully, this will FixYa problem!

SOURCE: Replaced front engine mount on Nissan Quest 3 times in the last year. Any idea what is causing mounts to go bad? Don't tell me it's how I drive.

Nissan quest has a huge proble. I searched with google and many others to fidn this same problem. The over drive can cause the torque to slowly break the cheap motor mounts. If you replaced it yourself you know how cheap and weak they look. There are mroe expensive brands with lifetime warranties in which they last a good 4-5 years even with a lead foot aka my wife slamming on the gas everywhere lol. So look to a more expensive motor mount with a lifetime warranty. When someoen guarantees it for life they build it not to break :) sorry for spelling errors im on a tablet. Im havign a bundle of trouble with my quest, the vcr built in stopped working, blower motor went out replace fsu and blower switch in dash and next up is blower motor. Have fun nissan quest are great vahicles, cheap parts but a hell of a time diagnosing the problem. Good thing is its about 50 bux for a life time warranty front motor mount. A way to help stabilize it i did when racing is put a heavy duty chain around the bracket as well, wont hurt a thing and will save the life of your motor mount. Sounds rigged but works like a charm. I had to change a motor mount on my mustang form racing 1 time a month untill I put the chain on there with the new one.

2004 Kias Sedona. I have the replaced the Front Wheel Bearing (Passenger Side) 4 Times in the last 6 months. The last one lasted 2 Days. It was sluggish going uphill, jerking, and then there was a loud...


My guess is the original shim that came with the factory bearing and hub assembly was discarded and never installed on the new bearing (That does not come with a shim) causing the new bearing to fail.
